Rob Ascough said: Interesting. Since I live in NJ, I wonder if I can apply for an "outer market" season pass for, say, SFKK, and save a bunch of money when I should actually be buying a Great Adventure pass?
Yes, but you'd have to go to SFKK to process it. That was the whole thing with SF passes and the radius limit before - to stop that sort of thing.
I still have to go to Texas to get that deal.
The real question is what happens if I try to renew next season.
I'll find out next year - I have a SFMM pass yet live in *Eastern* PA. :)
So I had some time to kill. The other park that offered this (for my Zip Code, at least) was SFStL at $44.99.
Also noticed that some of the parks (all?) are offering meal vouchers this year. The description:
"Meal vouchers make it easy to eat when everyone craves something different. They also ensure that teens don't spend their lunch money on games. Vouchers must be purchased ahead of time, and are good for specific meals at several restaurants, any day of the season."
This way the parents and teens can do other things, without having to worry about them blowing the money on stupid stuff and complaining that they're hungry later so mom has to stop at the McD's drivethru on the way home (and spend more money)
Six Flags has actually had outer market passes for several years. I don't recall how I first found out about them, but I have purchased them at Six Flags St. Louis (closest Six Flags for me), Six Flags Over Texas and maybe Kentucky Kingdom. Apparently not all the parks were offering them, because I asked once at Great America and they said the didn't. I can't say how long for sure I have been getting them, but I would say maybe around ten years?
Anyone know if I can get one for Discovery Kingdom? I live in Cleveland and that is the first Six Flags park I'll be visiting this year. I didn't see anything on their site, unless I dodn't go deep enough.
Outer Market Season Passes are only available at certain parks. And you also have to be at least 300 miles (I believe) away from any Six Flags Park in order to qualify. SFDK does not offer this program.
Well, the closest six flags to me is Great America. And even if you go as-the-bird-flys it's about 330 miles. Driving it's almost 400. Darien Lake was just over 200 but that's not a Six Flags anymore. *** Edited 4/1/2007 7:53:14 AM UTC by Jason Hammond***
